Two weeks into our ride, we were both exhausted and at that time, pretty disillusioned. I had sent off a quick message to my son, my sister and one of my grandchildren. Only my granddaughter replied:
You can’t give up now, you’ve reached your halfway mark. Please don’t give up, you can do this. Just because the temptation is pulling you away, doesn’t mean you have to give up – Abigail
Her encouraging words galvanised us both and we decided to carry on. If you would like to know how we got on, let’s start at the beginning.
